Best beach hotels in Jambiani, in a nutshell

Jambiani village is my absolute favorite place on Zanzibar. It is a place where you can relax and enjoy in the stunning views of the turquoise Indian ocean from your beach hotel, learn about Zanzibari people, their way of life, admire dhow boats, have a soccer match on the beach, watch how women work on algae plantations and have a chat with Masaai. It is where tourists and locals live as one. That is why it is hard not to fall under Jambiani’s spell.

It is still one of those places, where tourism hasn’t overrun traditional life. People, their hospitality and jaw-dropping views can make a decision, on where to stay in Jambiani, even harder. The best beach hotels on the list are all amazing and located on or a few steps away from the beach. I know because I was there. New Teddy’s on the Beach is a budget-friendly option. Blue Oyster is and TheSpot are mid-range price beach hotels in Jambiani, while The Loop Beach Resort and Casa Paradis are on the higher price range. Extremely suitable for couples on their honeymoon.

If none of the 12 beach hotels in Jambiani listed is available, there might be some others that you should look at. Those are Red Monkey Beach Lodge which is another budget friendly option, Reef & Beach Resort – Spa Jambiani for a more upscale Jambiani stay, and others like Pili Pili Uhuru, Mango Beach House, Cinnamon Hotel and Geo Zanzibar Resort

No matter which hotel from the above list you choose, Jambiani beach, its beautiful and warm turquoise water, calm environment, and gentle breeze will help you put all the troubles behind. Enjoy in paradise.  

Hakuna Matata,
Anja
